It is important to know how many points certain moving violations carry, what the maximum fines are, and how those will affect your driver’s license and your insurance rates. Drives are unaware of the consequences of pleading guilty to speeding tickets and are not aware that many tickets can be reduced to lesser points and smaller fines that have no impact on your insurance. Be aware that simply paying the fine online can suspended your driver’s license and in some cases create a Habitual Offender suspension, which can lead to years of license suspension and even jail time.
